Jackalope 7B

We have used the SlimOrca dataset, PIPPA, and various other open datasets to fine-tune on top of Mistral 7B.

This dataset is our attempt to reproduce the dataset generated for Microsoft Research's Orca Paper. We use OpenChat packing, trained with Axolotl.

This release highlights the efficiency of SlimOrca, while improving the ability of the model's multi-turn chat.

HF Leaderboard evals puts this model only slightly below the MistralOrca release, but can be considered a reasonable tradeoff for a more general model that can handle multi-turn chat.

If you'd like to try the model now, we have it running on fast GPUs unquantized: https://huggingface.co/spaces/openaccess-ai-collective/jackalope-7b

Quantized Models

Quantized versions of this model are generously made available by TheBloke.

Prompt Template

We used OpenAI's Chat Markup Language (ChatML) format, with <|im_start|> and <|im_end|> tokens added to support this.

This means that, e.g., in oobabooga the "MPT-Chat" instruction template should work, as it also uses ChatML.

This formatting is also available via a pre-defined Transformers chat template, which means that lists of messages can be formatted for you with the apply_chat_template() method:

chat = [
  {"role": "system", "content": "You are JackalopeAI, a large language model trained by OpenAccess AI Collective. Write out your reasoning step-by-step to be sure you get the right answers!"}
  {"role": "user", "content": "How are you?"},
  {"role": "assistant", "content": "I am doing well!"},
  {"role": "user", "content": "Please tell me about the mythical creatures called jackalopes."},
tokenizer.apply_chat_template(chat, tokenize=False, add_generation_prompt=True)

which will yield:

You are JackalopeAI. Write out your reasoning step-by-step to be sure you get the right answers!
How are you?<|im_end|>
I am doing well!<|im_end|>
Please tell me about the mythical creatures called jackalopes.<|im_end|>

If you use tokenize=True and return_tensors="pt" instead, then you will get a tokenized and formatted conversation ready to pass to model.generate().

We use Language Model Evaluation Harness to run the benchmark tests above, using the same version as the HuggingFace LLM Leaderboard.


We used a verified, curated, filtered selection of most of the GPT-4 augmented data from the OpenOrca dataset. Additionally we include multi-turn chat from PIPPA, various datasets by LDJ from Nous Research, MetaMathQA, and Chain-of-Thought augmented data from the train split of RiddleSense.


We trained with 8x A6000 GPUs for 96 hours, completing 4 epochs of full fine tuning on our dataset in one training run. Commodity cost was ~$650.
